I appreciate wanting to hit an elite WR at 3 with no cover down on 3rd and goal from the 3... but there is a little more to this play than just the below... #GiantsPride
First off, let's start with the All-22 vs broadcast... and immediately we see the #Giants were in Empty to start and Manning motions in Barkley to the backfield. What we learned later is PS had called 2 plays, and Manning killed the pass to run IZ to the trips side...
If you notice from the endzone view... the D is in a Bear front and the OC does not cleanly climb to get the MLB (who ironically prob should have covered down on #3, OBJ), so to the 2 man surface EM's kill to run IZ is "correct" yet poorly executed

The '16 #Cardinals DL had Jones, Campbell, Okafor, Golden, Martin and a lot of aggression. Simple internal stunt here and Golden redirects nicely keeping his legs churning and splits the sack w/Okafaor w/a long arm to rip vs. Trent Brown #GoCards #GiantsPride
Lookin at @markusgolden a bit, can win w/high motor, feet that don't stop and understanding of the rush. Running an E-T stunt w/2i rucker, disrupts solidly as the Driver, then good vision to cut off escape lane and twitch to close/finish #GiantsPride
Bettch put Golden in the stacked LB'er in sub (played RB/LB in HS), seems the more space/speed he was allowed the more effective he was. Long sticks around the corner and finishes on QB Ryan. Think these interior stunts can be very effective w/rookie Lawrence as 0t #GiantsPride

Watched a few games of #Giants UDFA Paul Adams, like his athleticism, movement skills, power at times and ability to get the job done. His transition will depend on how coaches see him. Think at MINIMUM he can slide in as “TE” in overload situations (Shurmur likes) #GiantsPride
Run Game
Best known for getting downhill in gap schemes where he uses his power and big hands (10”) to his advantage. Like him as puller in Counter GT, has good quick feet, redirects well, plays w/high motor. Executed down blocks w/good leverage regularly #GiantsPride
Run Game (2)
I differ the most, in that I REALLY like his potential as Zone Blocker. By his 3rd step his balance, and inside hand were VERY consistent. Showed some savvy cutting off 2i DTs (not easy), and again his balance/nimble feet can be weapons on perimeter #GiantsPride

@MoveTheSticks made a great point recently ab explaining why teams make picks, etc from film (instead of citing BS). That means seeing #Giants Jones' traits through the lens of DG/Shurmur. Throwing on the run, placement, poise, and shot plays rank top of the list #GiantsPride
Throwing on Run
Jones is comfortable throwing on the run in BOTH directions, w/details like getting depth in his roll so he can then come downhill to the target. Cutcliffe did not move Jones much, but just bc he wasn't asked to do so often does not mean he can't #GiantsPride
Throwing on the Run (2)
Jones’ mobility was mostly seen out of structure, as he flashes athleticism, awareness and the arm to make NFL throws like this. When I first viewed this in March, wrote “Shurmur guy” in my notes #GiantsPride

The ‘18 Auburn-Georgia game was a good preview of 1 of the practice battles #Giants fans will see this offseason. New Auburn WR Darius Slayton faced off against new Georgia CB Deandre Baker for many reps. See below: #GiantsPride
Baker Break Up
Slayton as Lone-X into the boun gets squeezed after his outside release by Baker whos physicality at the top of routes really frustrated him. DS does not sink his hips/create separation at the top of the Comeback, and Baker plays through catchpoint #GiantsPride
Slayton Release
DS’s releases improved from ‘17 to ‘18, flashing a solid Single Move Release getting Baker to open his hips early. He then smoothly cuts underneath the DB’s near hip on the Slant finishing with a nice stab #GiantsPride

Took a look at new CB Julian Love from ND. 5’11” 195 lbs 2.5 year starter in a cpl diff defenses. Was a boundary corner mostly (always goes to short side of field), & comfortable in both press and off coverage (more frequent) #GiantsPride
Soft Press
Solid patience able to Mirror and Match WR early in route. Solid twitch capable of playing through the catch point reading WR’s eyes to find ball. Good rep, think he can handle majority of snaps this way against NFL level competition #GiantsPride
Limitations
Not speaking out of school, his length, play speed, and hands lack at times. This rep vs. a now Eagle WR, he does everything right with good body control, etc,. But his length limits against the long-armed JJAW & just can not get the PBU #GiantsPride

Prob some #Giantsnation Sunday Scaries going around, gonna look at some things Oshane Ximines (OX) CAN do for Big Blue. #GiantsPride #Giants #NYG #sundayscaries
Vs the Run
At 6’3” 253 lbs setting the edge can be a challenge vs. larger sized OTs. OX’s upper body strength is solid, his lower body will benefit from NFL locker room. Nice job setting edge here vs Outside Zone #GiantsPride
Vs the Run (2)
FAU mostly ran their stud RB at OX’s side (played exclusively on the D’s left), but here OX reads flow away. At his best as a see it chase it run defender. Solid finish, but again lower body strength improvement will help #GiantsPride

Quick Clelin Ferrel Thread: 6040 264 lbs with good get off/burst, and solid athlete in space too make him more scheme diverse than advertised. His story is unique and easy to root for. Traits below: #NFLDraft #GiantsPride #Allin @ClemsonFB
Get Off (+)
Almost a little overlooked at this point, consistently good stride length timing the snap well puts a lot of pressure on OL in their sets. Shows solid play speed when K&Ding, w/+body control and timing for UoH early in down
Moves(+)
2nd best technician in class (Bosa #1), lot of arrows in quiver to beat OL on both high and low side. Power combos w/+Long Arm or ++UoH can collapse pockets early. Club move dominated at times to smaller OL. Nasty swim move/twitch vs oversets

too early for Peppers tape thread? #GiantsPride
First Note: #DawgPound you guys will absolutely NOT miss all the base personnel from Williams, right? My god dude loves 3 LBers. I get that blitz looks can be a little more multiple but...
2nd Note: My gut says that Bettch will want to mix Peppers to BOTH BS and */NB to the field (Haley's role) to some teams. He is very active and comfortable in space with twitch that both is calming yet would make caffeine nervous, if that makes sense #GiantsPride
